A neat project born out of necessity for me as I am a magazine and catalog junkie and needed a place to store all of my latest reading material on my desk for future reference. This project can be completed in a weekend easy and can be made out of off the rack materials (1×6x6 is more than enough).

It has the look of a handcrafted piece but construction is simple and straight forward. Although i call it a magazine rack, it could be used to hold cookbooks, dvds or cds just to name a few.

The Sketchup plans are available for download from the website

If you download the plans and build your version of the Sliding dovetail magazine rack, feel free to e-mail us some pics so we can share them on the site! Enjoy

I like it! ...and will more than likely borrow the design for an additional Christmas gift for my 2 Great-Grandchildren’s Story Books.

Thanks for Sharing.
